The 26W3BN is a 330 gallon new IBC bottle with a 2" NPT valve. Also known as an intermediate bulk container or tote, this bottle holds the same capacity as six 55-gallon drums in less space and features a standard 2" NPT (National Pipe Thread) valve. Camlock is usually used for quick connects (like hoses), while NPT is for threaded connections. The 26W3BN is perfect for customers reusing cages and pallets. New bottles are made of FDA approved virgin resin, appropriate for food use. The 26W3BN includes a 6" top cap with a 2" NPS plug in the middle.
What is an Intermediate Bulk Container
An intermediate bulk container (IBC), IBC tote, water tank, or pallet tank, is a reusable industrial container designed for the transport and storage of bulk liquid and granulated substances, such as chemicals, food ingredients, solvents, pharmaceuticals, etc. Intermediate bulk containers are stackable containers mounted on a pallet designed to be moved using a forklift or a pallet jack. IBCs have a volume range that is situated between drums and tanks, hence the term "intermediate". The most common sizes are 1,040 liters or 275 U.S. gallons or 229 imperial gallons and 1,250 liters or 330 U.S. gallons or 275 imperial gallons (the 1040 liter IBCs are often listed as being 1000 liters). Cube-shaped IBCs give a particularly good utilization of storage capacity compared to palletized drums - one 275 gallon IBC is equivalent to five 55 gallon drums, and a 330 gallon IBC is equivalent to six 55 gallon drums.
High density polyethylene (HDPE )
is the most commonly used resin. This economical plastic has good impact resistant, is naturally translucent, flexible, and typically used for personal care products, such as shampoo bottles. Adding color will give HDPE an opaque look that will result in an increase in weight and rigidness. We have a variety of these rigid and tough high density polyethylene products in stock, from containers, pails, bottles, caps, tubs, and jugs. HDPE works well in below freezing temperatures. HDPE heat compatibility varies. Generally, it should not be used with products filled at over 145°F.
